Will England be Able Without Kane?

23-04-2018

When Kane went down against Bournemouth, England held its breath. An injury to England`s star performer seems to be something that would happen to the Three Lions. Especially with the World Cup just around the corner. Fortunately for England, the diagnosis was not as bad as first feared. The even better news is that it won’t rule Kane out of football`s premier showpiece. His injury does mean Southgate will be without him for the upcoming friendlies.

When a team loses a player like Kane it does leave a hole. The Spurs forward has managed 35 goals in 39 games and has chipped in with four handy assists. Those are the stats of Europe`s premier striker and a player whose stock couldn`t be higher. How will Kane be missed in the games against the Netherlands and Italy?.

Strangely enough, for the first time in a while, both the Netherlands and Italy won’t be at the World Cup. You have to go back to 1958 for the last time the Azzurri didn’t qualify for the World Cup. England will be coming up against two teams who are in transitional phases. Even without Kane, the Three Lions could roll over both of these teams.

Goals for England will come in the form of Jamie Vardy and Marcus Rashford. England have enough firepower to threaten these defences. Rashford`s electric performance for Manchester United against Liverpool showed how capable he is. The ageing Italian defence will battle to keep the young Mancunian out of the game.

The Netherlands have kept three clean sheets in their last 3 games. Breaching their defence will be a harder task and this is the game where Kane will be most missed. This does present the perfect opportunity to come up with a contingency plan. Recovering from damaged lateral ankle ligaments like Kane is doing is never straightforward. England will need to find a way without him should complications arise from his injury.

Two positive results from these friendlies will have a massive impact on England. At times, too much impetus is put on Kane to deliver. Time without him will help England become more balanced.

There are flaws to this England side and when you bet online with Betsafe you will see they are 18/1 to win the World Cup. They are far from favourites and one World Cup away from being considered title contenders. With that being said, the injury to Kane could be a blessing in disguise. More players in this side need to put their hands up. Without Kane, Southgate will be demanding more from his side as a whole. That can only be a positive for England.

The front men available are in a rich vein of form and will cause Italy and Netherlands lots of problems. There’s no doubt they will be eager to capitalise on this opportunity.

Most pundits would expect the Three Lions to be toothless without Kane. Gareth Southgate has England in a good place and winning these two fixtures without Kane is very possible. It’s not a long-term problem that Southgate will want and luckily it won’t be. Using this time productively will be the acid test for the England manager. If he does so, Kane could be back to lead the line against Tunisia in a more rounded team.
